Head-on collisions are among the deadliest types of motor vehicle crashes, because the force of one vehicle is added directly to force of the other. Head-on collisions are relatively rare, accounting for only about two percent of all crashes, but they account for more than 10 percent of all traffic fatalities. If you’ve been the victim of a head-on collision, your injuries are probably substantial, so you should only trust your case to an accident attorney with experience in catastrophic injury cases. Drawing on more than 25 years of combined legal experience, the attorneys of the Schuler Law Office have the knowledge and experience to pursue full compensation for the most serious injuries.
